“With awards shows you usually have an idea that it’s not going to be just one, so you need to have a build-up situation,” says Elizabeth Saltzman, stylist to Gwyneth Paltrow, Uma Thurman and Best Actress nominee Saoirse Ronan. “There are so many moments [press days, events, talk shows and screenings], and you have to have a narrative. You want the public to like them and to make them seem accessible. There’s so much that fashion can do and say – it sends messages. You’re not just putting on a frock and walking out the door.”
